Driver pleads guilty to aiding in shooting of Milwaukee girl

MILWAUKEE (AP) — A Milwaukee man has pleaded guilty to helping two other suspects in the fatal shooting of a 5-year-old Milwaukee girl.

Twenty-four-year-old Paul Farr pleaded guilty Friday to two counts of harboring or aiding a felon.

Farr was accused of driving two men who prosecutors say fired into a Milwaukee house on Nov. 6, 2014. Laylah Petersen was sitting on her grandfather’s lap when she was shot. Police say the shooters targeted the wrong house.

The Journal Sentinel reports Farr’s bail was reduced to $5,000 and he’ll be allowed to live outside Wisconsin pending sentencing if he posts bail. He will be sentenced July 8.

Twenty-three-year-old Arlis Gordon and 20-year-old Carl Barrett Jr. are charged with first-degree reckless homicide in the girl’s death. Both are scheduled for trial in June.
